    Pic #1 well having fired allot of H/Guns the trigger position of that piece what ever it is would be rather interesting I think the selection process for being issued to you was either index finger had to be 7" or more in length as the trigger sits above allot more that a normal H/G. Decent size bore on the barrel as well may have been a good handful when discharged. Invented by the same person that designed the Great Panjandrum Wheel..........in WWII

    Ron, to cite a well known supernatural idiom "Don't cross the streams!" I feel a can of worms has been opened and upended...

    The Martini conversion looks more like an M79 than an M79 does!

    I wonder if anybody involved in the Niblick program in the 1960's ever saw that and thought they could put a modern twist on it?

    The Martini looks like a WW1 era M79 blooper to me.........or smoke discharger.
